TAKE SCALP OF HARRISONS
Pottawattamles Tot l' Too Swift a
Game (or Visiting; County
The Harrison county offukvs have among
their number several good ball players,
but nevertheless they went down In de
feat before the Pottawattamles yesterday
afternoon at Lake Manawa. At the close
of the seventh Inning the scalps of the
biaves from Logan, tho county seat of
Harrison county, were dangling at the
belts of Freeman and Reed and other offi
cials of -Pottawattamie county. To In
part compensate them for their defeat the
men who administer the affairs of Harri
son county were the guests of the Potta
wattamles at dinner at the Grand hotel at
the close of the game when the bravea
doffed their war paint and once more as
sumed the garb of civilians.
The Harrison county men, 125 strong,
headed by the Royal Highlanders' band
of Logan, journeyed to Council Bluffs In a
special train over the Illinois Centra!,
reaching here at 3 p. m. They arrived
fully confident of downing the Pottawat
tamles but despite their brlllant dark green
and red uniforms they were forced to re
turn home acknowledging that they had
met their Waterloo.
The game was, taking everything into
consideration, a very fair exhibition of ball
and was much enjoyed by the large crowd
which filled the grandstand. In size and
weight the Harrison braves easily out
classed the Pottawattamles but the up,
down, In and out curves of Dr. Wyland of
Underwood for the home team told the tale
and brought defeat to the visitors.
The team of the Harrison county men
was made up of the following: C. L.
Huff, deputy county auditor; E. S. Garri
son, cleric of the district court; H. L. Har
vey, county recorder; D. W. Owens,
deputy recorder; T. M. Adams, deputy
treasurer, A. W. Blackburn, deputy clerk
of the district court; A. J. Shlnn, sheriff;
G. W. Atkins, deputy auditor; D. E.
Bralnard, county surveyor.
Pottawattamie county was represented by
Freeman L. Reed clerk of the district
court; Tracy Rod well, deputy clerk of the
district court; Dr. Wy!and, county physi
cian. Underwood; Harry M. Brown, clerk
of the superior court; Ed. Canning, former
deputy sheriff; G. Balrd, of the recorder's
office; E. Smith, jr., of the recorder's of
fice; BUI Nye, unattached; William Amd,
W. R. Adams of the county treasurer's
office of Harrison county essayed the role of
umpire and bravely defied the threats of
lynching that was freely made. Deputy
Sheriff Groneweg of Council Bluffs and G.
E. Ferguson of the Logan Nucleus acted
as official scorers.
Freeman Reed pitched the first two ln
nlnta for the Pottawattamles .and his
work was a revelation to his friends. After
the second Inning his arm gave out and
he retired In favor of Dr. Wyland who
pitched the rest of the game. Bill Nye
was behind the bat and In consequence he
has "-several sore spots on his hands and
ehlns. For the visitors County Treasurer
Harvey pitched for the first five Inning
and then made way for Deputy County
Auditor Huff. Harvey's retirement from
the box was due to the fact that part of
his rnlnmcnt met with an accident and he
was compelled to seek a change. E. 8. Oar
rlKon, clerk of the district court, was be
hind the bat and showed that It was not
the first time he had essayed the role of
To describe the game In detail would be
nuperfl uoua and the official scorers not be
ing versed in the Intricacies of the great
national game did not keep a very accurate
score. The game ended, however. In favor

For the first tour Innlnzs Harrison county
looked like a sure winner, but the Potta
wattamles were ra iled by Dr. Wyland and
at the cIoko of the fifth Inning It was a tie,
eurh side having secured I runs. At the
close of the sixth It was I to I In favor
of Pottawattamie and at the close of
the first half of the seventh It was again
a tie. Then In the last halt of the last
Inning the Pottawattamles scored two men
and won amidst the applause of the ad
Dinner was served at the Orand betel
when the game was played over again and
the visitors returned to the con dries of
their own county much pleased with their
trip, leaving behind them an Invitation
for the Fottawattamles to Invade Harrison
county and piny a return game. The In
vitation, It Is understood, will be ac

has been proposed to organize a West End

purpose will be held Wednesday evening

Twenty-fourth street and Avenue B. The

Interested In the welfare of that section of

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES. Aug. 22. (Special.) George
A. Williams, of Chicago, a former resident
of the city but who had been absent from
here for nenrly thirty-four years, mot
with a dlsagreeab'.e experience while here
and as a result city officials will have a
suit for damages to defend in court. Wil
liams was walking along the street and
stopped one who proved to be Detective
Hardin, to ask him for the location of a
good restaurant. The detective arrested
tho man and marched him to Jail. He was
kept In Jail a day or two and was released,
no charge having been made against him.
He succeeded in convincing the city au
thorities that he was not a grafter and
had a right to be In the city and further
that he was known to persons here. He
proved to be a son of Rev. A. C. Williams,
for many years a pastor of the Methodist
church here In an early day, and as a
boy lived In Des Moines. He Is also a
nephew of 3. L. Walte, postmaster of
Burlington. This afternoon he called up
his cousin. Clay Walte, In the office of the
Burlington Hawkeye and was Identified
by long distance 'phone, though the cousins
had not met for fifteen years. He em
ployed an attorney and commenced suit
for damages against the detective and
city officials and the city for false and
malicious imprisonment. The city police
force had been making it a rule to run
in almost everybody on the street not
recognized in anticipation of a great in
flux of persons for the state fair.
Military Instrnction Resnmed.
Military Instruction will be continued
right along at the various colleges In Iowa,
despite the orders of the secretary of war
for raising the standard of military work
done where army officers are assigned for
such instructions. At the state university,
Iowa City, the orders of the department
will be compiled with and the work in
military discipline will be raised to the re
quirements. At the state normal school at
Cedar Falls no attempt will be made to
comply with the department orders, since
It is not regarded as possible to do this in
a normal school. Major Olmsted, who Is a
retired officer, in charge of the detail at the
normal school, will probably be selected
to represent the regular army In Iowa for
Instruction of the guards, but until de
tailed on that work will go on with the
military work at the normal school. There
Is one other college-SImpson college
where a retired army officer Is under assign
ment to this work.

The Board of Trustees, of the State col
lege held a session yesterday for the ex
press purpose of buying furniture and
furnishings for the new agricultural hall

to proceed with the furnishing of the build

of the college would permit.

' Entries (or Pair Close.
Entries for the state fair closed tonight.
The books of the officers show that never
in the history of Iowa state fairs have
there been so many entries, not in one or
two classes, but generally in all classes,
and therefore never a. finer outlook for a
great exhibition. In the horse department,
for Instance, there Is one class of Percher
ons where there are sixty-four entries
a larger number than at any American
show of horses. This morning the secre
tary received telegrams from two leading
horse breeders begging for still more space
and promising to add many more horses to
their exhibits If they could only get In.
The Farmers Mutual Co-operative Cream

porated. The Pauls Lumber company of
Pella Increased capital stock to $40,000.
T. F. Teagarden of Montana this morn
ing secured, through an action in court, a
right to find out where his sister lives. The
girl had been left an orphan and was
turned over by the county to a home-finding
association which placed her In a home
In Minnesota. Mr. Teagarden had left
home and knew nothing of this. He has
been engaged several years In the stock
business in Montana and returned to find
his sister, but the home-finding society
would not give him the information. In
court today the officers of the association
finally gave him the desired Information.
The child Is now in Minnesota.
